Everyone should know what was gone through.

It should be in school history books. Freedom was not free and things have not changed today. We owe our military and God for what we have.


Required Submarine Reading

by jefftytoo on Jan 16, 2014

I'll be brief. Among the many dozens of titles published on the topic, without a doubt this book is one of the best five ever written concerning the American submarine experience of World War Two. I'd personally put it within the top two, interchangeable with another favorite for highest honors. It is informative yet engaging; frequently tensely thrilling yet still offering a grand historical sweep, often from a humble first person point of view. And it absolutely is a page-turner. It was written by a wonderfully gracious and talented man well known and respected, even beloved, as a submariner's submariner. Ned Beach lived this book. (You've likely seen him interviewed on old History Channel submarine documentaries.) And he eventually rose to become Naval Aide to the President. Though best known for his watershed submarine novel, "Run Silent, Run Deep" (quickly turned into a truly misdirected, disappointingly silly movie), THIS is the book to start with if you want to learn about the real adventures and achievements of U.S. submarines in WWII.

These true stories of U.S. submarine patrols set during WW2 in the Pacific are more exciting than fiction. He follows the exploits of several different subs. He tells of torpedo attacks on destroyers, and the sinking of Shinano (which was the largest Japanes carrier afloat). He makes you feel like you're being depth charged, yourself. You feel the loss of the submariners who don't make it back home, and joy when crews who were presumed lost at sea, are found at the end of the war in a POW camp.
